CA9: A state SW executed by a federal officer doesn’t violate 4A

A state issued search warrant is not executed in violation of the Fourth Amendment because a federal law enforcement officer executed it. United States v. Cruz-Ramirez, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 21528 (9th Cir. July 19, 2019).

Defendant wasn’t “in custody” when he was questioned in his own home during execution of a search warrant for child pornography. It was a familiar place, neutral, and brief. United States v. Boshoff, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 119582 (D. Me. July 18, 2019).*
